I was reading through a thread on Reddit about some of the fads that had died out and one in particular, Google Glass, had me thinking about why exactly that happened. The actual technology behind GG is a solid, and a concept people have often dreamed about having ever since seeing it discussed in theory or portrayed in media. However, a lot of criticisms arose from such as, price, the recording of activities in public, and even the overall usefulness of them in the first place. It doesn't just apply to GG either, a number of other tech changes came around that went under the same scrutiny and while some are now generally accepted, others aren't.
It seems like we have this big gap between our overall desire for better technology and the implementation/utilization of it when it arrives. Before I give out examples of this, I want to hear your opinions on this part first.
